    Well right now it is still very much alive although there are talks of replacing it with the NCA. which isn't that much of a shock or a rarity seeing as SOCA was only formed in 2006 as the result of merging the NCIS and NCS.

    Either way, still part of national security - good pay and plenty of 'undercover' opportunities which is what the OP wanted.

    SOCA dissolved in 2013 and became the National Crime Agency.

    Edit: I didn't realise how old this thread was!

    One thing I do know about that I will add to avoid any confusion is regarding qualifications. Some police forces don't require any qualifications, but others so. For example the police force in my area (Avon and Somerset) require A Levels to join.

    You would need to be worse than the people you arrest. There's not a lot of difference between someone locking up and someone not lucking someone up. Being a woman helps too because most prisoners are men and men don't hit women. You would have a hard time being a police officer if you weren't more than a bit of a rebel yourself.

    In order to become an undercover cop you need to gain a lot of experience. As an undercover cop you need to act like a normal civil to blend in and you need to know the basics, ie who is suspected for a crime without giving away the fact you’re a cop. However, you don’t need a degree to become a police officer. You will though need to go through at least 30 hours of police training physical as well as mental training amd basic assessments to see if you’ll be able to deal with the pressure. It isn’t hard to get a job as a police officer if you’re really determined. Wishing you the best of luck!
